Friday morning saw Boro follow up news of Woodgate's appointment with a "gorgeous" away kit unveiling and also pre-season plans.
Middlesbrough's Twitter account has undoubtedly racked up plenty of brownie points this morning as they followed up one big announcement with two more in quick succession.
First up, the Championship club announced the appointment of hometown hero Jonathan Woodgate as the club's new manager on a three-year deal (official website), the former England defender having been part of the coaching setup under previous boss Tony Pulis.
Woodgate, who made 112 appearances for Middlesbrough in two spells, will be assisted by former Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur teammate Robbie Keane at the Riverside Stadium, as well as Leo Percovich and Danny Coyne.
Reaction from the fanbase on Twitter was fairly mixed but edging more towards the positive - here is a snapshot:

Wasn't my first choice, but we get behind the manager and support him and our team #UTB— Erimus (@Erimus_1876) 14 June 2019
Wasn't convinced at first, but the same old, same old approach didn't work with Pulis so Woody offers a fresh approach and, hopefully, a bit of excitement again. #UTB— James Giles-Franklin (@JOwainFranklin) 14 June 2019
Local lad managing his boyhood club! UTB!— Ross Elliott (@rosselliott21) 14 June 2019
I am actually really happy about this. Why cant we all just get behind him and push the team on instead of bitching before a balls even been kicked— Todd Francis (@ToddFrancis87) 14 June 2019
Boro's social media team then followed up the 39-year-old's appointment with the unveiling of their new away kit for the 2019-20 season:
